The present investigation examines the relationship between specific components of self-concept (physical appearance and physical abilities) and more general components (physical self-concept and global self-esteem), in order to provide new tests of actual-ideal discrepancy (AID) models. Self-concept researchers are interested in how self-concepts in specific areas are related to global self-esteem. Particularly relevant to our study are relations between actual self-concept ratings (how one actually is), ideal self-concept ratings (how one ideally would like to be), global self-esteem, and other more specific components of self-concept. The general question about the links between specific and global domains of self-concept has been renewed by the growing emphasis on a multidimensional, hierarchical model of self-concept, since this perspective offers the promise of a rapprochement between the unidimensional approaches that focus primarily on self-esteem, and multidimensional approaches that focus on domain-specific components of self-concept.
